Before being elected local MP, Julian was a working farmer on the outskirts of York where he lives with his wife Victoria and two children, George and Florence.
Julian, a Yorkshireman born and bred, has a tendency to call a spade a spade whilst gaining a proven reputation for getting things done. As an effective local campaigner he has been fighting to protect York’s valuable green belt from the Council’s unsustainable housing plans. He has also played a key role in local success stories such as rolling out superfast broadband, improving flood defences, retaining vital bus services, and highlighting the plight of tethered horses on the roadside.
As well as championing the local area, Julian is lobbying hard to improve York’s transport infrastructure by upgrading the northern outer ring road.
In his spare time he enjoys spending time with his family and is a passionate supporter of both Leeds United football club and Yorkshire county cricket.
